Hello, everyone. After playing a lot of pvp in the beta and in the current pre-patch I couldn’t help but think and reflect on the current state of elemental shamans in pvp.
The current change that this class has undergone has been very nice and very necessary, it was lagging behind other classes for years and was obsolete in its gameplay and abilities. But we still have the same problem as every year, after many years and the years continue to pass and we continue with the same problem: survivability and defensive spells / abilities.
It is not possible that after all the changes and the advances gained with DF we continue to be the preferred class to be killed, the favorite target in any field and it is not for less… we end up dead even if we drop all the defensive cds and run like chickens without head. It’s a matter of time before the shaman dies in a focus since he doesn’t have a decent survivability compared to other classes and I’m writing this because it’s not something new… we’ve been like this for years!
DF presented itself as an opportunity, a small opportunity that they could give this class a spell, an ability, a talent… something! that prevents us from being the focus par excellence and we could not do anything to avoid it, die.
We are very reliant on healers or companions to be able to face combat in arenas or hodgepodge with tanks, we can’t depend so much on people or a healer when our class is so poor compared to all the others. We have absolutely nothing, just run and end up dead, the level doesn’t matter, the rating doesn’t matter, the team doesn’t matter, everything doesn’t matter… the result is the same anywhere in the world.
PLEASE!!! take advantage of DF to give something to the elemental shamans. Many years have been left behind on the same topic, survivability and defensive cds in pvp, do something and take advantage of DF so that this class can be played on equal opportunities.
Not everything is damage. We need something to avoid being THE DAMN TARGET or survive a moment of burts.
Thanks and greetings, I hope someone can get this to Blizz or some blue.
